Lived In Modern
The goal when building this intracoastal waterfront home in Jupiter, Florida, was to create a contemporary residence that stayed true to its coastal location and maximized the space of a uniquely sized 20,989-square-foot lot. Affiniti Architects met the challenge, designing a main home boasting 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, with a detached 3-car-garage offering a mother-in-law suite for the family’s guests. The overall size of the home is 7,077 square feet, with 4,414 square feet of living space.
At the base of the long driveway, the home’s clean angles tell the story of an airy and modern structure with plenty of room for easy living. The slanted metal roof lines of the main house and detached garage create peaks of interest, drawing the eyes upward, while the elongated flat roof of the breezeway establishes a suitably grand entrance.
The wood cladding on the breezeway ceiling lends warmth as you approach the home’s entrance. Upon entering the custom 12-foot pivot door, the intracoastal waterway is seen immediately through wrap-around sliders. Unobstructed views continue to the outdoor living area, where cement patio pavers and straight-edge coping give a clean appearance to the 50-foot lap pool, a true athlete’s paradise.
Multiple elevations of turf, grass and pavers create separation for entertaining. The firepit area off the pool provides ambiance for watching the southern sunsets on the waterway, while the covered outdoor kitchen and seating area can be used year-round. The upstairs back balcony facilitates indoor-outdoor living for the homeowners to relax off their bedroom and enjoy the views. Composite wood decking is cool to the touch and made to withstand the outdoor elements.
The homeowners envisioned a space that felt modern yet lived in, and they are thrilled as they settle into their new home to create memories with their family and friends.
